Nintendo Power, a much loved magazine that has run from 1988 as the official magazine of Nintendo in the US, is to cease publication as of the near future. Exactly how many more issues will run going forward is as yet unknown, but it won’t be many.
The problem apparently stems from Nintendo’s lack of support for the publication, and unwillingness to support Nintendo Power’s forthcoming digital efforts. Future, the publisher, sees these new digital initiatives as a necessity for the coming years, with print magazines becoming rapidly less popular across the board and so has seemingly decided that the brand will not stay economically viable.
